We recognise that looking for a care home for yourself or a loved one is very important and that you need to feel confident that the environment and quality of care is of the highest standard.
At the recently refurbished Forder Lane House we offer a hotel style but homely and welcoming residential care setting where we are renowned locally for the quality of care we deliver – which we believe is second to none. Forder Lane House is a small residential care home, with 25 well appointed en-suite rooms, set in its own grounds. Forder Lane House is owned and managed by South Devon Rural Housing, a charitable not for profit organisation. We focus on care not profit.
Each of our rooms is well presented and equipped with en-suite shower rooms, a good range of high quality furnishings (you can of course bring your own), satellite television and internet. A telephone can be provided at extra cost but less than BT rates.
There are three common rooms of differing sizes to cater for all tastes. From our small library where residents can read or do jigsaws or chat, to our main room for events, music and fun in our reminiscent bar in the style of an old pub. Cocktails and music evenings go down well with residents and create a great social environment.
Being older does not mean you can not have fun and we provide a wide range of activities to stimulate, encourage social activity according to your interests. We also have a modern 14 seat mini bus for regular outings.
Our Chef prepares quality food from local sources catering to most nutritional and dietary needs. We recognise that food is very important for older people and a source of enjoyment so we aim to cater for a wide variety of individual choice. In warmer months you will see residents eating ‘al fresco’ on our patio next to the dining room or enjoying an outdoor Bar B Q.
We encourage potential residents to visit the home and maybe book to have a meal in our purpose built dining room. Families of residents are welcome at all times, but we prefer you to let us know if you are arriving after 8pm so we can ensure access and a welcome. Feel free to ask for beverages during your visit and should you wish to dine with a resident, meals can be made available at reasonable cost.
We aim to make every visit to Forder Lane a pleasant one. Forgive us on the odd occasion when we are very busy! – We are looking after your loved ones. Our Manager, Bonnie Van Beek and her assistant Jonathon Cowen, are available should you wish to speak to a member of the senior team.
